Hedera helix English Ivy. 
Zones 4 to 9. Woody perennial. This ivy does best in indirect sunlight or shade where it will grow as a groundcover or climbing vine. Along the ground, it stays about 6 to 9 inches high and can spread to 100 feet! It has clinging tendrils that can shoot up walls and trees to a height of 50 to 100 feet. 
English ivies are one of the top 10 air-purifying plants, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
This Ivy can be grown indoors but that can be tricky. 
Look for this to be planted by the wall at #6 Tee this spring!

Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light' commonly known as Chinese silver grass, Japanese silver grass or eulalia grass, is a clump-forming warm season grass 3-7窶 tall.  Full sun and is tolerant of a wide range of soils from well-drained sandy soils to the heavy clays. Tolerant of summer heat and humidity. 
If you can leave the grass standing during winter it protects the crown and provides a lovely visual contrast in a snowy landscape. Cut foliage close to the ground in late winter just before new shoots appear. Pink to red flowers in feathery, whisk-like, loose terminal panicles (8-10窶 long) bloom above the foliage from late August to October. Flower panicles gradually turn beige by mid-fall as the seeds mature.  We have this growing in the parking lot and in the beds on the east side of the clubhouse. #miscanthussinensis #miscanthussinensismorninglight
Calamagrostis x acutiflora 'Karl Foerster' - Feather Reed Grass

Likes full sun and tolerates a wide range of soil types including dry sandy soil and clay. Minimal water requirements! Water to root depth once every 2 weeks! Perennial Plant of the Year in 2001.
